Le Club 55, St Tropez
Sundays in St Tropez are all about a long, lazy lunch at Le Club 55. Famous for hosting Brigitte Bardot and the crew of “And God Created Woman”, the restaurant opened in 1955 and has been an institution ever since. The tree-shaded restaurant is as traditional as they come in St Tropez. Bustling with personalities and chic jet set types, it was the perfect place to meet up with Mama and Papa P for a family lunch of Mediterranean fare. Jambon et melon, gazpacho, moules and giant grilled gambas filled the table, accompanied by a constant flow of local rosé. Heading on to the beach, we stopped by their shop -a treasure trove of printed fabric cushions, gauzy sarongs and basket beach bags – before taking to the pier to cool off in the sea breeze.
